Emerie is 2 Years Old!
Two years old. Two beautiful, amazing, wonderful, fantastic years of life. I find myself staring at you in amazement every single day. I can't believe God loves me so much that he gave me such an amazing little girl to raise. You are so smart and funny and a million other wonderful things. It's hard to believe that two years have passed us and I am both sad and excited to see all of the things that the future holds. Sad because you are growing up so quickly, but excited because I can't wait to see the wonderful, Jesus loving person that you will become. You are a talker, and you are so good at it. You still speak in phrases but now you are also forming sentences. I love hearing everything that you have to say. We passed a field of daffadils the other day and you yelled "look, rubber duckies!!". Does it get cuter than that? You also think walnuts are meatballs. I love your little mind. Your little voice is so sweet and you love to sing. The video we have of you singing Jesus Loves Me is adorable. You also like to dance and you would play outside every second of every day if we let you. You love to explore and pick up rocks and sticks. You enjoy your time with Papa on Fridays because you and him spend so much time exploring, throwing rocks in the pond, petting the alpacas and horses, and riding in the red wagon. You are still a fantastic sleeper... you go to bed around 8:15 and sleep until 7:30 or later most mornings (when Mommy and Daddy don't have to go to work). We are grateful for that and hope it continues after your little brother joins our family! You love him so much already. You pat Mommy's belly and kiss him and tell me you feel him kicking (even though I don't think you do!). You are going to be such a good big sister.
We love you more than words can express!
Mommy and Daddy
